Shore excursions in Italy ,Daily Tours and guided Limousine services.
We had an awesome day with Claudio our driver. He collected us promptly and took care to find out what we expected to get from our trip and made sure that he exceeded these expectations. He called ahead to book a trusted private tour guide who was waiting for us on our arrival in Pompeii - he was fantastic! And then we drove on to Sorrento, stopping at various places on the Amalfie Coast to take photographs and then we had a late lunch in Il Positano, before returning to Rome. Travelling with two young daughters, it was a long day trip, but memorable - and we all thought it was our best day of our week-long holiday to Rome.

  • Notes

Guests who have visited Florence previously and are looking for a truly memorable and exceptional excursion will find that this tour fits the bill. A 45-minutes' drive from Livorno through the heart of one of Italy's richest agricultural regions will take you to Lucca.
This city is one of Tuscany's well kept secrets. The picturesque fortress town is steeped in history; it was here that Caesar, Pompeii and Crassus agreed to rule Rome as a triumvirate in 56 B.C. Later Lucca was the first town that accepted Christianity. In the Middle Ages, the city fell to Florence and during the French invasion Napoleon made Lucca a Municipality and gave it to his sister Elisa whose name is still connected with a number of buildings and sites.
Audio guides can be rented in Lucca or we can hire for you a licensed tour guide for 2,5 hours for about 120.00 euro.

Proceed to Pisa. Once a famous sea-trading republic and an archrival of nearby Genoa. In fact, the Cathedral was begun in 1063 to commemorate the Pisans' victory over the Saracens in Sicily that year.The Leaning Tower was originally designed as a bell tower to the Cathedral. It was begun in 1173 and took almost 199 years to build.

To this day the name of the architect is a mystery. The Leaning Tower of Pisa was designed as a circular bell tower that would stand 185 feet high. It is constructed of white marble and has eight stories, including the chamber for the bells. There is a 297 step spiral staircase inside the tower leading to the top. The top of the tower is about 17 feet off the vertical. It is also slightly curved from the attempts by various architects to keep it from leaning more or falling over. Many ideas have been suggested to straighten the tower, including taking it apart stone by stone and rebuilding it at a different location. In the 1920s its foundations were injected with cement grouting that has stabilized it to some extent.

Until recent years, tourists were not allowed to climb the staircase inside the tower, due to consolidation work. But now, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is open again and it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Italy.

If you decide to climbe the tower please inform our office so we can suggest an appropriate time to book the tickets
